To manage your weight gain and loss, you need to know your body’s daily calories. You need to divide your calorie intake into several meals and snacks. Every food except water has calories, and calories cause energy production in the body. If you can get enough calories throughout the day, you can prevent the penetration of radicals into your tissues and premature aging. Mifflin-St Jeor’s Calorie Calculation Formula, created in the 1990s, provided an alternative and more valid estimate of RMR. In this formula, unifying factors such as gender, weight, height, and age are involved, and its formula is as follows:
Men: (10 × weight in kg) + (6.25 × height in cm) – (5 × age in years) + 5
Women: (10 × weight in kg) + (6.25 × height in cm) – (5 × age in years) – 161/b>
But in addition to these factors, activity is also influential in calculating calories. The more active a person is, the more calories he will consume:
People without activity = calories needed daily by the body * 1.2 (low or no action)
Inactive people = daily calories required by the body * 1.375 (exercise about 1 to 3 days a week)
People with moderate activity = daily calories needed for the body * 1.55 (workout about 3 to 5 days a week)
Active people = daily calories required by the body * 1.725 (everyday exercise)
Hyperactive people = daily calorie requirements * 1.9 (heavy daily exercise)
In this case, people with moderate physical activity, for example, should multiply the calories by 1.55 to get the calories their bodies need.
